Proportional Braking

With a proportional brake controller, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer brakes every time - proportional controllers are able to adapt to every braking situation differently. So, if you slam on the brakes in your truck, your trailer brakes will activate with that same extreme intensity. And if you merely slow down as you approach a red light, your trailer will gradually brake in the same manner. Just set the initial power level, select a boost setting, and you're good to go.


As long as the P2 controller sits level on a horizontal plane and is pointed in the direction of travel, it will sense - via an internal inertia sensor - how your tow vehicle brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow vehicle as you brake by signaling the controller to send out enough power to your trailer brakes so that they are activated with an intensity that matches. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Power Boost for Heavy-Duty Towing

Aside from smoother, more efficient braking, Tekonsha's P2 brake controller also offers a boost feature that gives you more initial braking power for those times when you're towing heavy loads. You can switch boost levels so that the power output to your trailer brakes automatically starts out at either 14 percent or 28 percent of the predetermined power setting.


So, if you boost the initial power so that your trailer brakes activate with 28 percent of the overall intensity at the start, the brakes will reach maximum braking faster. This is particularly beneficial if you are towing a heavy load because the intensity required to stop that load may be far greater than that needed to halt your vehicle. Therefore, sending out more initial power to the trailer brakes - and causing them to reach maximum braking faster - allows you to better control the trailer so that it doesn't push your tow vehicle before coming to a complete stop.


If your trailer weighs less than your tow vehicle, no boost is needed. But if you wish to set the boost so that your trailer leads the braking of your towing setup, you can select level B1. The following table gives an indication of when you might use the different boost levels and the power increases that they offer.


Approximate Gross Trailer WeightBoost LevelIncrease in Initial Power Output
Less than tow vehicle GVWB114%
Equal to tow vehicle GVWB1 or B214% or 28%
Up to 25% more than tow vehicle GVWB2 or B3*28%
Up to 40% more than tow vehicle GVWB3*28%

*Both B2 and B3 offer a 28-percent boost in initial power. But the braking curve for B3 is more aggressive than that of B2. This means that, even though you will start out with the same intensity when using these boost levels, you will get an overall more aggressive braking experience with the higher level. So if you use B3, you will reach maximum braking sooner than if you use B2.


Safety Features

The Prodigy P2 offers advanced safety features to prevent damage to various components of your towing setup. Integrated reverse battery protection shields the brake controller and your trailer's breakaway system from shorts. When the P2 is not in use, it will be in power-saving mode. In this setting, the power draw falls to only 3.6 milliamps, minimizing drain on your vehicle's battery.


When you stop at red lights, or any time that your truck and trailer are at a standstill with the brakes applied for more than 5 seconds, the P2's "hold" feature will activate. When this happens, the power output to your trailer's brakes will be reduced to just 25 percent of the preset power setting so that the brakes will not overheat.


If ever there is a time that you need to brake your trailer separately from your tow vehicle - when traveling down a steep incline, for example - the manual override lever is easily accessible. Pushing this lever engages the brakes on your trailer with full power. In addition, when you activate this override, the brake lights on your trailer will illuminate, properly warning those behind you of the braking action of your rig.


In addition to all of those safety features listed above, the P2 offers diagnostics such as:

  • Open ground
  • Overload
  • Output short
  • Power loss
  • No trailer connection

Automatic Leveling and Simple Installation

The self-leveling feature of the P2 ensures that the brake controller continues to function even as you drive up steep hills or through the mountains. Simply mount it in your cab at any vertical angle, and the controller will level itself automatically thanks to its 360-degree rotational range.


Correct P2 mounting360-Degree P2 mounting

Note: The P2 must be mounted on a level horizontal (side-to-side) plane and must be lined up with the direction of travel for the internal sensor to function properly.


Installation is a snap. After mounting the P2 unit in your cab using the included pocket mount, hardwire one end of the included pigtail harness directly into your vehicle. The other end plugs into the brake controller. To transfer the P2 to another vehicle or to remove it for storage, just unplug the unit and slide it out of the pocket mount.


Installation Accessories

For even easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter (sold separately) is available for most newer trucks and SUVs. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your vehicle, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, one of the following will be required:

20-Amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) for 2- to 4-brake applications

30-Amp circuit breaker (38630 - sold separately) for 6- to 8-brake applications

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 90885 Review

Today were going to review part #90885. This is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Break Controller. This is a proportional brake controller, which will activate your trailer brakes in proportion to your vehicles braking action. It will automatically adjust the trailers braking based on the deceleration of the tow vehicle, and it will activate immediately so theres no pausing like with your time-delay brake controllers. This controller does have an automatic leveling ability. Theres an internal sensor on the inside which will detect deceleration, even if the controllers not mounted flat.

You can position it at any angle, up or down in a vertical plane, 360 degrees, but you will want to be able to place it to where you can read this LED display right here. Now as far as horizontal position, you do want to stay horizontal and parallel to the direction of travel, so this way. In other words, not like this. Youll want it parallel that way. And not like that.

So as much as you can, and vertically you can go whichever way you want. Now there are three boost levels. Right here is the boost button. When you push that, it will put you into a boost 1, boost 2, or boost 3, and thatll let you adjust the initial braking power and aggressiveness, so if youre using a heavier trailer with a heavier load, youll want to increase the boost level. This controller also has a continuous diagnostic check, which will alert you to any potential problems.

It does have integrated safeguards, which will protect your vehicle, the trailer, and the brake controller. It does minimize drain on the car battery by drawing only 3.6mA when not in use. Itll prevent the trailer brakes from overheating by reducing power output to them during prolonged stops when your foots on the brake, and itll help defend the brake controller and the trailer breakaway system against any shorts. Right here will be the digital blue LED display, which is easy to read. Now in a minute here, Im going to hook the power up to it and well be able to see that.

On the very bottom here, which you can reach from the front, is a manual built-in rotary-style manual override for emergency braking purpose. Now on the very back, you can see the plug-in. It is a quick disconnect feature, which will let you easily remove and store the brake controller when not in use. It does come with this wiring harness that plugs into the brake controller and the pigtails to wire up to your vehicle. It does come with this type of mounting bracket, which will install with the mounting hardware to the side holes, or the popular pocket style, which you would mount this to your vehicle and then just slide this in, and on each side would be a pin that would slide into those mounting holes. To release it, you would just pull out those. It slides right out. There are also butt connectors to help you connect it to the wiring in your vehicle. We do also recommend that if you are going to move this from vehicle to vehicle, to buy an extra wiring harness and an extra bracket, if you dont use one of these. That way you have one in each vehicle and it makes it easier to remove the controller from one vehicle to another. We also do sell wiring harness that are vehicle-specific, meaning theyll have the plug like this n one end to plug into the brake controller. On the other end, instead of just these bare wires, theyll have a plug that will fit the factory brake controller port on your vehicle. What youll want to do is check the fit guide, if you do have the factory brake controller port, on our website and it will give you the part number of that vehicle-specific brake controller harness. This is designed for trailers with up to four axles or eight brake assemblies. It is designed for use with electric or electric-over-hydraulic trailer brakes. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. Now what Im going to do is, Ive got a power source here Im going to connect the wires up to, so we can get an idea of that blue LED display and just some of the features. Ill show you how they operate on the controller. Ive got them all hooked up to the power source. Now Im going to snap this in. Im going to turn the power on. Now what youll see, is when the power comes on, youll see a C. Youll see a dot and a C. That means the trailer is connected. Now if the trailer wasnt connected, let me just disconnect this and Ill show you what it looks like, youll see itll flash N-C and that means not connected. Whatll happen is thatll flash for about fifteen seconds, then it will change to just the two dots, and that means you trailer is not connected. Ill show you here in a second. There you go. Now youre just seeing the one dot. Therell be two dots if the boost feature was engaged. If it isnt, theres just one dot. What were going to do is connect the trailer back up. There we go. Now youll see it is connected. Now this boost feature button right here, now youll see when I push it once, itll say b for boost. Now right now it isnt in any boost level, as youll see by just the dot and the C. Now when I hit boost and I go to boost 1, and then theres a boost 2 and a boost 3. When Im in a boost level, watch when that goes off, you should see a dot, a C, and a dot. Therell be two dots. That means the boost feature is engaged. Now to set the power, heres the power over here. If you push this manual override all the way on as far as you can go, and you turn that knob, and thatll set the boost or the power that you want. So lets say we set it at, lets say 6.3. Now I let off the manual override. So basically when you go to hit this manual override, as you push it, its going to ramp up and itll go all the way to 6.3. Thats the power you set it for. So you just set your power control, the dial there, by pushing all the way in and set the power. Theres a feature, if this is connected and its just sitting with no motion or activity for 15 minutes, it will go blank. It still has power connected, but itll go blank just to save on the power going to it. That should do it for the review on part #90885, the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Break Controller.

Ordered the controller with a wiring harness for a 2012 Nissan Titan with the factory tow package. Quite simply Plug-n-Play. Located the factory harness connector inside the dash to the left of the steering wheel behind the lower trim panel (two phillips screws and pull straight out), Plug in the harness, mount the controller, plug it in and ready to go! If you know where you want to mount it, the install is 15 minutes max! etrailer.com is great, shipping was quick, packaging was great and the order was correct. The quality of the products was excellent. 48102

I didn’t have a good location that was reachable while driving so I mounted the controller on top of the dash. I leveled the bracket with a spacer and ran the harness by an access panel. I used about 70’ of the duplex wire due to running the cable to front and then back to the house batteries inside the coach. The access panel made it easy to make the connections and run the wires through the firewall. I mounted the 40 AMP and 30 AMP circuit breakers up front in the main fuse panel box. I drilled a hole through the box and firewall to run the wires from the brake controller to the breaker and to the blue wire for the tow connection at the back of the coach. I ran the battery connections to my house batteries up front instead of using the engine batteries in the back. I found the brake connection wire under the coach in front directly below the brake pedal. I mounted the converter in a beam in the back with lots of zip ties 9444


Comments

For ford ranger 2010 and perhaps other years:Be aware that the video contains the wrong instruction for the 2010 ranger. In wiring the brake light wire, the switch shown being tapped into gives reverse braking sensing, that is, it is 12 when the brake is not applied, but 0v when it is. I found elsewhere that the correct wire is the 2nd connection on the 5 pin plug that rides on the brake itself.This is no comment on the original video, which was excellent, and referred to the 2011 ranger model.

Wire colors can and do change often. We offer the colors that we find in our videos as a starting point, but even if you have a 2011, it is best to double check and make sure to positively identify the wire color first.

The Tekonsha Prodigy P2 brake controller is a great product. This is my second one to own. Shipping was prompt and installation was easy. One thing I really like about etrailer.com is the installation videos. It helps me decide if I can do it myself or not. However I did find one small error video demonstrating the installation of the Prodigy brake controller in the 2012 Silverado pickup. When hooking up the power to the controller under the hood the video states that you need a 10mm 1.25 pitch nut to go on the stud. It is easy to find. I found one at Home Depot. The only problem is it actually takes an 8mm 1.25 pitch nut. This caused only a slight delay in the installation and another trip to get the correct nut. Overall I’m very satisfied product, the service, and the price. …and I really do like the video instructions. 44810

I installed this model 90885 Prodigy P2 Brake Controller using the ETBC7 Brake Controller Wiring Kit on my 2007 Dodge Nitro. On a scale of 1 to 10, I consider myself about an 8 where it comes to automotive mechanical and electrical work. I also strive to get as close to perfection as possible. To do the job right, it did take some time and it did require paying close attention to the directions for both the wiring kit and the controller. However, the directions were "right on", and all the needed "goodies" to do the job were furnished. My hat is off to ETRAILER for the informative videos they provide and their customer service, which includes very quick shipments of their products. 122727

The brake controller and trailer connection were easy to install, but took about 6hrs total time. I used a dremel to cut a hole in my bumper to install the trailer connection through, which took the most time. The only thing the kit could use to make it complete is about ten more zip ties, but that was no big deal.18776

Finally made the maiden voyage with the new brake controller installed. It worked perfectly installed in my '01 Tundra towing our '07 Casita, The controller worked seamlessly, as advertised. The installation was a bit more complicated than I had imagined using eTrailer's harness kit. We wired it so that the camper would draw power only when the truck was running saving the trouble of having to unplug when stopped.12275

Do your homework first. I found this website by chance, and boy am I glad I did. I was originally quoted $250 for the trailer brake and got it for half with etrailer. It strongly recommends that you buy the installation kit. You need to look to see if your vehicle already has a harness, which mine did. You can buy a wiring adapter for about a third of the price as the installation kit. Again, doing some research will save time and money. As for installation, saying that it took five minutes is almost exagerating. I just attached the mounting bracket to the truck, attached the controller, and plugged in the harness. I will definately use e-trailer for my next purchase. 19378

This product is the best brake control I have ever put in my trucks. I am running 6 of them in my fleet now and have no complaints at all and can't say enough about how easy they are to set up and use. The amount of rubber they save with the 3 boost settings, alone makes them worth every penny. Thank you etrailer.16884

fast and eze install. eze to read/understand settings. after a quick brake test to dial in the brake needs for the load on the trailer. Flawless operation. love how it keeps the trailer from bumping the truck and has smooth and proportional braking . very Happy. Beats a "TIMER" style controller in every way. Make towing loads alot better and safer.7998

Fabulous product. My son installed this on our 2008 Scion XB. He had to use the wiring kits from etrailer and totally wire it from scratch. I highly recommend this brake controller. It has all the options and then some. Very safe and easy to install if you know what you are doing. It will mount in any of 360 degrees making it easy to find a good place for it.50641

The brake controller works well and I installed it myself. I wouldn't have attempted it without the video instruction. Although the video for the honda odyssey has the guy mis-speak about hooking up the power wires backwards. I knew enough about it to know though, so not a big deal. 9821

A real manly product I mounted it in a 97 Ford 350. Already had the Prodigy 1. The pocket holder is the same, just had to plug it in. I chose the P2 for the increased mount angle, electric/hydraulic capabilities, and ease of the pocket mount. Time will tell the quality. I know it stops my 5 ton utility trailer.4881

So I purchased a Tekonsha p2 brake control recently after hearing good reviews from friends. After a few weeks of having it installed I have a few gripes: 1. Display - The LED display is super bright and there is no way to turn down the brightness. It is really distracting to have a flashing bright blue light shining up at you at while driving at night. If you are the kind of person who is bothered by a GPS/Phone screens while driving at night then this this will bother you. 2. Wiring - Tekonsha's wiring instructions tell you to wire the brake controller directly to the battery. If you do this the brake controller runs 24/7/365 even when the vehicle is shut off. Do you really want a constant drain on your battery? Instead I chose to use a relay to turn the brake controller on and off with the ignition. It would have been nice if there was a relay included or at least optional wiring instructions. 3. No Off Switch - My previous gripes wouldn't be that big of a deal if you could just manually turn off the brake controller when not in use. But for some asinine reason there is no off switch. So if you don't want the brake controller draining the battery of your parked tow rig, or are tired of the blue light blinding you at night you will have to climb under your dash, remove the brake controller from it's holster and then disconnect the wiring harness... 30936


Comments

There is an automatic shut-off built in to the controller. After a period of time, it will shut down on its own. It will not drain the vehicle battery if wired according to the instructions.Also, try the bracket instead of the holster. With the bracket, you can rotate the controller so the display is not directly aimed at the driver when not used.

Worked just as described in the video. Hooked it up in a 2014 Toyota Tundra.

I have had many controllers over the years but this one is the best I have seen yet. It is very nice looking, economically correct, easy to use, small in size and can be mounted just about any way and place you want. When towing/braking, the unit has the ability to sense how hard you are braking and adjusts accordingly adding or releasing the brakes as needed. I am not well versed in the electronics field but it's easy to see that this is a step above the old style controllers. Excellent product! 121127

I installed this Tekonsha brake controller on my 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 in about an hour. The actual install of the controller to the underside of the dash took only about 15 minutes but mating the included harness with the one that came with my truck added a little more time. Matching the cables was pretty easy as the controller came with excellent instructions (but If I had to do it over, I would probably buy the optional vehicle-specific harness just to save a little time and to insure a good connection.) I haven't towed with the controller yet so will need to add some comments about actual operation in the near future. By the way, the install video by etrailer.com is excellent. 112437

2013 Chrysler Town and country White wire with green stripe worked for cold side of brake switch. When you cut a hole in the boot, to pass the wire from the engine compartment through the fire wall, make it at the 2 oclock position when looking from the front of the engine. this makes it easier to pass the wires. Check the free led circuit tester prior to use. Some don't work. Use a piece of aluminum angle stock to mount the circuit breakers. Mount the aluminum to a 10MM fender bolt next to the fuse box. This way you don't need to drill holes. Was a good kit with good components.83238

I installed this in a 2006 WK Jeep in about two hours. I used the generic pigtail because I didn't have/couldn't find a vehicle specific connector. There are more specific instructions for wiring it online, be a little creative with your search. I was able to find the same sheet as the generic one packaged with the controller, just specific to a 2005-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The install took me about two hours, working by myself, and was relatively straightforward. Much of the time was taken up by making the install of wire runs neat and preserving the "factory look," if you are not particular about appearance, the install could go much more quickly. This was my first time installing a brake controller. I haven't had a chance to hook it up to a trailer yet, but it seems to be functioning properly. I am a little concerned that the ground wire on the supplied pigtail is a small gauge, 14, so if I encounter any issues I will switch this out with a larger gauge wire. I also noted that the factory wiring harness supplied by the Jeep dealer for the hitch has a 14 gauge brake wire. While this should be sufficient for up to two axles, if I notice any issues, I will replace this wire also with a heavier gauge. The generic pigtail contained a 12 gauge wire for the brake line. All around, so far very pleased with this purchase. 72226

This was exactly what I needed for my 2005 Tacoma for towing. I pulled a 29' camper trailer 300 mi. with it shortly after installing. With the proper hitch setup and this brake controller, it turned what could have been a white knuckle nightmare into a pleasureable trip. I purchased this with the proper wiring plug-in adapter which made it extremely easy to install in less than 20 min. The only thing I don't like about it is how intensely bright the blue LED lights are at night when I'm not towing anything. Of course its fairly easy to unplug and remove when not in use though, but that does get old. I wish it just had an on/off switch or something. I was initially concerned that the lights would put a drain on my battery as they do stay illuminated after turning off the truck, but I found it's only for a few minutes then they turn off. Overall, I would recommend this controller, and I would buy one again based off the last 9 months of use.64563

And reallyy good quality product, works well, and the boost feature is a great idea and helps provide smooth controlled stopping of even the heaviest loads.

My only complaint was more to Chevrolet not including the ability nuts to fasten the connections in the engine fuse box terminals. I spent nearly 4 hours running to different auto supply stores and hardware stores trying to find the correct size. I even called my local dealership and they couldn't help me.

I had this product installed professionally, but didn't really get a chance to try it out until we took our camping vacation in the Adirondacks this mid-July. It worked excellently and I was very pleased. It certainly made me feel safer on the roads (especially driving up and down the mountains and at higher speeds on the throughway. I would recommend this product without hesitation. Thank you. Ed I.49089

I was utilizing this same unit on my 2004 Nissan Titan pulling our 25' travel trailer on the freeway when a pickup truck lost control and ended up perpendicular to us in our lane. We did hit her but being able to rifle the brakes and have the trailer do the same we all walked away and the trailer never veered from it's direction. I don't know how much this contributed to our positive outcome (except for the Titan) but I am very thankful that this brake controller works under the most dire of circumstances. I was able to pull it out of my truck before they towed it away for good and will go in my new one.47871

Tiny profile, 2 mounting options allow choosing type of mount given locations available. Ability to mount in a non-horizontal orientation also greatly helps this. For my open top Wrangler I like the 'holster' mount so that I can easily and quickly remove it to lock it away when I'm not around. All wiring was straight forward except for the attach to the brakeline, but given this varies by vehicle and year that's not the products fault. Some internet searching for my vehicle make and model wiring schematics allowed me to figure that out without too much issue. A electrical 'tester' also helps with this. Lot of functionality in a small package, I look forward to using it!47202

The product was delivered early. Online instructions were plentiful. As a newbee to brake controllers I had no clue that it's normal for power to always be applied, that the device ascertains this fact and enters a partial sleep mode when not moving or connected to a trailer (or so it seems). I kept looking for an ignition cut out.46840

If you have a 94 Z71 GMC your truck will probably have the wires you need already wired in the truck. Rmove the spare tire and look above the frame. You will find the big blue and orange wire. You will also find the running light, turn and brake wires. Use these to wire to your 7 pin plug. Save the 4 pin adapter for your 4 pin flat plug trailers. I made the mistake of cutting off one end of my 4 pin harness and wiring it to the 7 pin plug. If you do this you will have to buy a 7 pin 4 pin adapter.46617

This thing is really neat. It took me about 7 hours to get the whole thing done. I know, I'm slow. I had a loose connection in one of the wiring clamps, replaced them with twist clamps. Then I had to calibrate the power by driving 45 mph with some manual brake on to warm the brakes. Then 25 mpg repeatedly applying full manual brake to try and lock up the trailer tires. This was kind of fun and it's all working great now. This is a lot of new information to work with all at once with the wiring, drilling, calibrating, etc. If I had know, might have paid the $100 to have someone do it.45374

This is my first brake controller so that fact may disqualify me as a reviewer; but then maybe it makes me a better one! I usually do a lot of research before buying something I need that I know little or nothing about, but that was a quick task in this case. EVERY forum, expert review, and installer recommendation had the same two pieces of advice: Buy proportional versus time delay, and buy Tekonsha. Beyond that, it was either buy the Prodigy P2 if you don't need an LCD display or the P3 if you do. I didn't need the LCD display because I'll only be hauling one trailer with the same drag car on it, so now that I have the controller installed and adjusted I don't expect to have to mess with it any more. Installation was easy peasy with the adapter cable for my '10 Tacoma, mounted under the lower dash just beneath the steering column. I did add two slightly beefier sheet metal screws to the dash mount as the two screws provided seemed a little weak. Solid product, works great, took all of 15 minutes to adjust.44806

I ordered the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller along with a Draw-Tite Ball Mount, 2 5/16" Chrome Ball and Pin lock on a Sunday and it was delivered the following Friday. The Tekonsha Brake Controller came with a DVD and with aid of Video for installation instructions for 2011 Chevrolet Silverado (mine being 2010) on ETrailer site, I was able to have installation within 2 hours. Easy to follow instructions on where to find wiring on my vehicle under dash and hood assisted installation immensely. After installation and testing the Brake Controller with trailer attached everything worked as required. I was quite pleased with ease of installation for this not so handy novice.

I hauled an empty dual axle utility trailer from Albany, NY to Philadelphia, PA, a distance of 250 miles. The return trip included a 1990 Mercedes Benz 420SEL strapped to the trailer.

Excellent business with etrailer.com. Brake Controller and wiring kit arrived within 72 hours of placing the order. I had never installed a brake controller before; however, between the instructions provided and the numerous technical videos on the website, it made the installation very easy. My only improve would be for the installation kit to also include some sort of clip to attach the wire to the positive post of the truck battery. The actual Prodigy P2 brake controller seems as advertised; however, I have not used it yet except during the initial testing of the installation.

I chose this controller after doing days of research online and in talks with friends who have trailering experience. The balance between cost and performance seems to be reached perfectly in the Prodigy 2. It was easy to install thanks to the video etrailer.com provides on its website. I ordered it about 7PM and immediately got an email confirmation. About 1/2 hour later I got a second email telling me the item had shipped and that I had been upgraded to Express Shipping at no extra charge. Two days later I came home from work to find that the controller had been delivered and I had it installed before my wife came home from work. It took me no more than thirty minutes with the hardest part being locating the almost-hidden connector under the dash of my 2005 Toyota Sequoia. Worked perfectly the first time, and the instructions were very clear on how to set it up to work best with my trailer. Highly recommended.30700

This was a replacement for a similar product from a manufacturer etrailer no longer carries. The previous product randomly turned on the brake lights on my 2010 Tundra while it was parked at night; they might stay on for some minutes then turn off. Tapping the controller unit turned them off at first, but then nothing worked except unplugging the unit. Then it totally crapped out. Contrast that with the Tekonsha P2 unit. No defective operation, easy installation, great display with clear diagnostic significance. I mounted the unit with Velcro strips( buy them at the fabric shop) super glued to the unit and the vinyl of the Tundra, on the left side by the left knee. Did I say really quick delivery and great communication from etrailer? You can't go wrong, and the online communication and discussion is worth a lot. The unit also makes the trailer brakes work,like it should. Recommended26429

Very simple to install. It came with a 4 wire harness with a receptacle on one end to plug into the back of the unit. The ends of the wires were stripped and ready to attach to the wires already under my dash. It included 4 crimps to connect the wires. My truck had 4 wires and so did the unit. Directions were easy to figure out what wire got hooked to what wire. Usually every time I buy something like this it will have 40 wires and I have to figure out which ones to use. This could not have been easier. In fact the hardest part of the whole thing was trying to decide where I wanted to mount it. The wires are ling enough to reach halfway across the dash. If your truck is prewired this unit only takes about 5 minutes or less to install. I am goijng to use the unit tomorrow for the first time. With all of its features, I am sure it will be great. If not I will write back.26165

No problems with the brake controller, and thanks to the video on etrailer showing where to locate the leads under the hood I was able to do it myself. The lead under the fuse box was not taped near the fender, but stuck under the box!!! After watching the video I knew not to remove the box which would have been my first course of action. After a lot of pulling (gently) and tugging I was able to free up the wire. The video may have saved a very expensive repair to my Avalanche. Plus shipping was faster than expected.

Great product and good price. I found a slightly cheaper price but the site didn't have the great installation videos so I figured if Etrailer went to all the work to share the videos then they are the kind of company that cares about how well the products work and will have great customer support too. I didn't have the non contact tester like in the video and to work under a dash you have to stand on you head so I googled “car alarm install diagram” and found my car and checked on the list for “brake” and it showed which wire by color code was the right one to tap into. I then just used my cheap 12 volt tester to verify and it worked great. IFY 1999 Jeep Wrangler the brake wire is white with brown stripe. Thought this might help someone else. 19374

Never had a brake controller before, so I can't compare this to anything else, but it worked flawlessly for me. Easy DIY instal (once I was able to get the electrical wires through the firewall). This unit can be installed tilted upwards more than most of the other controllers (stills needs to be parallel to ground), which made for a nicer, easier instal in our Sienna. That is a HUGE plus in my opinion. Easy to set and use. Display is nothing fancy, but gives important info and is easy to read. Once it is set, you will not need to look at it much anyway. 16953

Outstanding product. Installed on my 2009 GMC Yukon. Found the wires under the dash, hooked up the brake controller wires, plugged in and took trailer for test drive. After a minor adjustment to setting, works like a champ! Well worth the money for what you get. BTW, I tucked the wires into the left side compartment of the dash and installed a rubber grommet to allow me to take the wires out of the top of the access door and plug in to the back of the BC while hung on my front window using a suckshun RAM mount. Makes it easy to de-install and hide when not in use but quick and easy to re-install when time to hook up the trailer.14147

I rated it as high-good because I haven't installed it yet, but I have convidence it will work well and should rate an "excellent". The product and installation parts/instructions look to be first class. It will be installed on a Dodge Dakota used to tow a Casita RV trailer. I bought this on advice of several other RV owners that all agreed that it is the best you can get. It will be replacing a time delay type controller that frankly I just cannot stand. The fact that it has an inertia sensor that is not a pendulum is the #1 reason I chose the Prodigy over others. According to the instructions, it does not have to be mounted level and internally self adjusts for tilt while going up and down hills. I find that to be fantastic and can hardly wait to try it out later this summer on a trip across the Rocky Mountains.13904

Dont go cheap when it comes to stopping safely. This is the top of the line brake controler and it really makes you feel confident when braking with a heavy load behind you.

Great product, great website, good price and quick delivery. But the thing that made the purchase really worthwhile was the ability to find a video of how to install this specific product on my particular truck. The 2011 GMC Sierra comes with a bundle of wires tucked under the driver's side of the dashboard. The video from etrailer easily found on You Tube shows exactly which wires from the truck to connect to the wires on the brake controller. This job would be impossible for the average guy to do without the video. I would definitely do business with etrailer again. 13217

Excellent brake controller. Easy install due to the excellent video and instructions provided by E-trailer. Installed on a 2011 Silverado, and it only took a few minutes. Always have excellent customer service, and fast shipping from E-trailer. Thank you very much!!!11104

Excellent brake controller. The video provided by e-trailer was right on target for my 2009 GMC Sierra. Had a bit of problem finding a flat surface to attach it to but I got creative with a small piece of wood and could not have asked for a better result. 8171

Etrailer is number one for customer svc. and HELP!! Ordered Prodigy2 before 3pm and received out of state NEXT DAY.. The instructions left a little to be desired, BUT the available videos and instructions on their website made the installation a snap.. You could maybe pay a couple dollars less somewhere else, but you get what you pay for.... as for me, if they stock-it, I'll buy from them!!!6195

The Prodigy P2 This was the first time that I have ever ordered from your site. I have been very well satisfied with the entire purchasing and ordering experience. From the initial order through Delivery, the product that I ordered was shipped faster than expected and the product was very easy to install. I was especially satisfied with the quality of the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 product and how easy it installed in my vehicle... Thanks5335

FANTASTIC I just replaced my 1999 silverado with a 2005 silverado and need to set it up for towing my car trailer. I think you have the best prices on trailer equipment, and customer service that is hard to beat. I don't tow everyday but my eqipment is always ready thanks to you. Thanks again Alan 5238

Simple install The controller came as advertised and was shipped very quickly. I also ordered the vehicle specific cable and it mounted up to the truck just like the picture showed. I mounted the controller with the supplied hardware and I would have included a picture but it did not turn out as it blends in the lower dash so well. 2002 Dodge 4x4 2500 24v Cummings4975

Really, really quick! I don't think I have anything noteworthy to add to the many other excellent reviews of the Prodigy controller -- it is a great product and is very easy to install. I will take this opportunity to give eTrailer an excellent rating for how quickly they shipped this to me, and how well they communicated. Thanks!4776

P2 brake controller I didn't do the install but it seems pretty standard. Functions well once you figure out the proper voltage and boost settings. Digits are bright and legible. Maybe a little too bright for night driving. Everything you need to know for operation is on a small dvd.3755

I just love this brake controller, it's my third one now. When I purchased this unit I was not aware there were connectors for the wiring that are specific to each vehicle, and I would have liked to have purchased the proper connector for my model year vehicle. I never did find the connecter on the web site, but bought one locally after installing the unit in my truck. "e trailer" shipped my unit to me in just a couple days after I ordered it, and it arrived in good condition. I will do future business with "e trailer".102624

Shipping was very fast and packed very nice. Installing was a breeze, I reviewed the instructional video before I even purchased this controller. Once the controller arrived I unpacked all items reviewed the wire diagram and mounting instuctions. Located wiring harness and hooked the wires together with the supplied wire connectors (crimp connectors- May want to state wire crimpers needed). Applied power and the unit worked. After a little set-up once connected to the trailer this controller works very well. Thanks etrailor for selling a great product.97897

I have the P3 installed in another vechile so it was an easy choice to puchase another product from Tekonsha. This one was going in a Jeep Cheokee. The units size was not so large as to be an issue during normal driving and was fairly easy to find an installation location. The 360 degreee rotation mounting make it so you can place it almost anywhere. The intallation was easy with the additional purchase of the ETBD7 wiring kit. Setup of the unit was simple and the instuction are easy to understand. 90724

The Prodigy P2 is as easy to install in my 2011 Chevy Silverado as any brake controller I have used. This is a direct wire install with now extra wiring harness used. It took me about an hour in 90 degree heat under the maple tree. I had to buy a fuse and nuts for two studs under the hood of the Chevy. Total cost was $6.49 for the extra parts needed. 89676

Great product and the video's made it easy to install. I just purchased a 29 foot camper, and needed a Brake Controller to help stop it on a dime... the P2 performs!!! It gives me sound mind that when I need my truck and camper to stop the P2 is going to help make it happen. Also etrailer.com sales it at a great price, you might find it some where else for less, but you're really going to have to search and waste your time for that lower price.84731

A great brake controller. With the excellent video instruction here at the website, installation took about 1/2-hour. Much of that time was finding where my drill and bits were hiding. After installation, I tested the brakes on my 01 Coleman Sante Fe, and everything worked just fine. I like the ease of use, display of codes, and manual override of this controller. I like that the unit easily disconnects from the wire harness and holder, as I only need it when going camping. I'm very happy with the purchase and this website.82865

Prodigy P2 Controller/2000 Toyota Tundra I wanted a good controller for my 2000 Tundra to control new electric brakes on my 32 ft sailplane trailer & on a 29 travel trailer. I did a lot of i-net research & decided on the Prodigy P2 from E-Trailer. I wanted a progressive controller. The P2 has not been installed yet but it seems well constructed & has a lot of good features. It also comes with a pigtail for easier installation & removal. The E-Trailer site has a wealth of "how to" information, good prices, & I could get everything at one place. I am now confident that I can do a nice installation & that it will perform well.4248

Installed this with the pocket, and it is nice. Super easy to operate. This is the 2nd Prodigy I've purchased, the 1st one was in 2005 and has never had a problem. This is the updated version for tow vehicle #2, I have no doubt it will be fine for as long as we own the new truck, which will be forever. 99902

I ordered this unit along with the vehicle specific interface adapter, 4 pole to 7 pole trailer connector. I had my own 10ga wire and split loom to run from the back of the truck to the front. Took some time but got the job done. I suggest that you go ahead and spring for the 10-2-1 duplex wire that etrailer has available so you don't don't have to take the time to feed the two single conductors thru the loom (I strongly suggest using the loom if you do this yourself). Once connected and powered up it took all of 5 minutes to setup. I ordered the Tekonsha P2 along with all the necessary equipment to "turn key" the project along with an oil cooler on a Friday night. Saturday morning I was notified that the order was already packaged and ready to ship along with my 5 business day shipping being upgraded to 3 business day shipping. As stated my order arrived the following Wednesday. Now that's customer service. Packaging was great. Thank you etrailer. I will order from you again and I am recommending you to everyone I know.98844

I had the original prodigy for many years, heard the 2 was even better, first trip out had to do a full 55mph to full emergency dead stop fully loaded 27 ft 5er behind my Sierra Duramax.. Had 5 feet too spare before we T-boned a PU on hiway 23. 5 Stars for excelant performance! -- Setup and adjustment was very straight forward. Boost options make this unit great for through town driving, gives that little extra edge of safety. Good product, good price, fast delivery. Good choice..98733

Customer service was great. Had to call them to discuss my needs, they knew what they were talking about and sold me the right parts. Install was simple when following the instructional video they have on this site. Very nice having that resource, more helpful than a phone call because you can pause it. :) I installed a flat four and a seven pole with a trailer brake controller to my 2006 E-250 van, worked the first time with no blown fuses like the old days.

I ordered the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 for my trailer. The product is excellent. It was a snap to install and the wiring installation was a breeze. The wires were color coordinated and by size as well. I would not hesitate to buy one again and will recommend it to all my friends.92008

I already have one of these units in my Tahoe and pull a 7,000 lb. trailer with it. The controller is great and easy to install with the adapter cable. I liked the P2 so much I bought a second unit for my Nissan NV3500. Once I found a mount position I had everything installed and ready to go in 15 min.85555

The installation video that was available on your website was very accurate in showing where cables were located and what needed to be done. The installation into my 2009 Silverado took about 30 minutes wich is about what the video indicated. I've used my new Prodigy P2 controller once and it is wonderful. I can't believe how smoothly it works and eliminates those jurky stops from the trailer. It is quick and easy to adjust / fine tune for each use dependant upon trailer load.84263

The controller worked great! I think my truck stops faster with a trailer and controler! It is easy to set up, mount, and adjust. The quick release holder isn't the best mount because it takes very little pressure to force it out of the holder. The tabs don't catch as well as they could. Overall, I am very pleased with the controller.84168
